roger wicker and the other was sent to president barack obama. they both can takened powdery substances. we're learning this from an fbi operations bulletin that went out we exclusively obtained. the it confirms both letters were sent from memphis, tennessee on april 8th. they contained the following message. to see iran and not expose it to become a silent partner to its continuance. both letters were signed, i am kc and i approved this message. the initial tests on the wicker letter were positive for ricin. we don't know what any test results were on the obama letter. both letters were intercepted before they reached their intended address, the u.s. capitol building and the white house. moments ago, senator minority leader mitch mcconnell says that means that security systems that have been put in place worked. >> i would like to recognize the postal and law enforcement officials for their excellent work in detecting and preventing this threat before it even reached the capitol. they proved the proactive measures we put in place do in fact work. >> reporter: and this fbi operations bu
, president obama promised americans, if you like your health insurance you can keep it. bill: they were smacked in 2010. we'll see whether or not it is an issue in 2014. >> thank you. bill: john fund with us here in new york today. 20 past, martha. martha: bracing for the worst but fighting back at the same time. where folks are filling sandbags around the clock right now to try to save their town from the devastating floodwaters. wait until you see the brand new pictures in on this. we've got a live report. >> we flooded five times but nothing anywhere near like this. this is the worst. money, and i avoid frustration. you'll find reviews on home repair to healthcare written by people just like you. you want to be sure the money you're about to spend is money well spent. angie's list -- reviews you can trust. with the innovating and the transforming and the revolutionizing. it's enough to make you forget that you're flying five hundred miles an hour on a chair that just became a bed. you see, we're doing some changing of our own. ah, we can talk about it later. we're putting the wonder
in washington, d.c. as president obama said it is a pretty shameful day around here. nothing to be proud of. we'll tell you all about it and take your calls at 1-866-55-pre. we'll look forward to hearing from you on twitter at bpshow and come on, come on! be our friend on facebook at facebook.com/billpressshow. what a shameful day, the most shameful day we can remember, i can ever remember out of washington. when 46 senators decided that they would rather stand with the gun manufacturers and rather stand with the gun lobby and nra than 20 little angels gunned down at sandy look elementary school or their grieving parents who came down here and begged the senators to take action. they don't give a damn about the american people. don't give a damn about those beautiful little babies or their families or their brave teachers who stood by them. no doubt who's responsible. 90% of democrats voted yes. 90 pest of republicans voted no. meanwhile up in boston, thanks to video from lord & taylor police have hot leads in that investigation. but don't believe what you hear on cnn. no arrest has been made i
, there is no limitation. president obama says this. some members of my party say the battle has no geographic limitations, and the laws of war apply. it's important to know that the law of war that they're talking about means no due process. boyleston street sure looked -- "i quote from the" wall street journal "editorial." boyleston street sure looked like a battlefield on monday and so did watertown on thursday night. the artificial distinction arises from undue focus on geography. the vital distinction for public safety is between common criminals who deserve due process protections and enemy combatants at war with the united states wherever they are. as for due process, the greatest danger to liberty would be to allow more such attacks that would inspire an even greater public backlash against muslims or free speech or worse. the antiterror types on the left and g.o.p. senators who agree that the u.s. isn't part of the battlefield are making the united states more vulnerable. americans erupted in understandable relief and gratitude on friday with the rapid capture of the terrorist brothers, but we sh
hearing on the obama administration's controversial drone program. lawmakers wanting to know more about who our government is targeting and killing. a retired air force colonel set to testify joins us live ahead. jon: the boston tere owe attacks may complicate efforts to a bi-partisan immigration reform proposal. the bombing suspect received asylum in the u.s. more than ten years ago. republican law mangers like senator rand paul are urging caution on changing immigration laws right now. senator paul writing to senate majority leader harry reid, quote we should not proceed tpwh-l we understand the specific failures of our immigration system. why did the current system allow two individuals to immigrate to the united states from a chechen republic of russia who committed acts offer to reus eupl. were there any save guards? could this ha been prevented, dores the immigration laws before prevent this? jay carney was asked about this at the press wraoefg. >> do you think rand paul has a point at all that what happened in boston reflects something wrong with the current system of immigration
graduate student lu lingzi was set for this evening. back in washington, president obama also observed a moment of silence at the white house as did the u.s. senate. but tempers flared earlier at a senate hearing. iowa senator chuck grassley was one of several republicans who've said the bombings, allegedly by two chechen immigrants, raise questions about immigration reform. >> i think we're taking advantage of an opportunity where once in 25 years we deal with immigration to make sure that every base is covered. >> brown: that sparked a heated exchange between grassley and new york democrat chuck schumer. >> i say that particularly those who are pointing to what happened, the terrible tragedy in boston, as i would say an excuse for not doing a bill or delaying it many months and years. >> i never said that. >> i didn't say you did sir. >> i didn't say anything about... >> i didn't mean you, mr. grassley. >> those remarks were not aimed at anyone on this committee or the three witnesses. there are people out there; you've read it in the newspapers; they've said it. >> brown: there were
right now, wolf, is a letter addressed to president obama that contained a suspicious substance and that's all that we're being told, was intercepted at an offsite mail processing facility. this is a mail facility run by the secret service where they get all the mail addressed to the white house. and they check it for this very reason, to screen it, to do scientific tests to make sure it's safe to come here. it had a suspicious substance in it, we are told, wolf, by a law enforcement source that there are similarities to the letter sent to senator wicker. what exactly does that mean i've asked my sources, so far, wolf, inconclusive at this point. we do know there were some marks, i guess you could say identifying marks in the wicker letter, a postmark from memphis, tennessee. there was no return sender. we don't know if that nor the message included in the letter to senator wicker if that bears the similarity, but we are being told that there are similarities. so it certainly makes you wonder if it could have been sent from the same person or if they think -- if authorities think it is.
a joke. >> oh, yeah! >>> the star of one of president obama's favorite tv shows is attending the white house correspondents' dinner this weekend, claire danes plays a c.i.a. agent on homeland. she's the guest of cbs news and will be sitting at a table full of members of the military. the network's other guests include afghanistan forces commander general john allen also army vice chief of staff general john campbell and retired admiral mike mullen, the former joint chiefs of staff. among others. >> bill: i will be there. that's not the table i'm sitting at. i wouldn't mind sitting at that table. >>> as you're drinking your coffee or tea this morning there is a good chance you went out of your way to get it instead of going for what was convenient. a new harris poll on morning beverage habits finds 60% of people will go out of their way to drink coffee or tea they think tastes better and they'll also spend more money for it. 78% say taste is the most important factor in choosing what they drink. >> bill: what do they mean going out of their way to get it? >> instead of stopping by the 7
the obama administration will allow us that and they have a bad track record. >> and this is not the course the administration will take. they will take reading him his rights after national security exception has run out and prosecuting him in a federal court as well. >> molly: thank you. >> megyn: more breaking news. news reporting that federal charges have now been filed against the surviving suspect. though they are reportedly being filed under seal. that means we don't get to see them. they will have to let it's know what the charges are but perhaps not all the supporting information. in a case of this magnitude there is no way they are going to keep the charges private and not public. in other words, what exactly has he been charged with? a terrorist act, using weapons of mass destruction? these were all on the potential list of charges. so we'll try to get more on what they plan to release to the general public in terms of what they say this man on your screen is actually guilty of according to our federal prosecutors. also, new reaction from the white house about the bombing investi
on whom those may be attending. senator jillbrand will be in attendance. president obama has been reaching out separately to different pockets of congress in an effort to open bipartisan dialogue. we're back with more show after the break. stay with us. rights but still support the drug war you must be high. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the day. >> do you think that there is any chance we'll see this president even say the words "carbon tax"? >> with an open mind... >> has the time finally come for real immigration reform? >> ...and a distinctly satirical point of view. >> but you mentioned "great leadership" so i want to talk about donald rumsfeld. >> (laughter). >> watch the show. >> only on current tv. you know who is coming on to me now? you know the kind of guys that do reverse mortgage commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now. (vo) she gets the comedians laughing and the thinkers thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely.
. and they are saying that at least preliminarily a letter that was sent to president obama and received on tuesday at an offsite mail facility has tested positive for ricin. when mail goes to the white house, it doesn't actually go to the white house first. it does go to an offsite facility. this is the same case with capitol hill. keep in mind and i know our joe johns has been reminding us of this, there are people that have to process it. and obviously ricin is a very dangerous substance. so there's certainly concern there about the people who had to process this, but this was intercepted on tuesday. and the big question now is, is there a connection here between this letter, this one letter and the other letter sent to senator wicker and the bombings that happened in boston on monday? it certainly is remarkable timing and really makes you question that. jay carney, the white house press secretary was asked about this during a briefing a short time ago. and he wouldn't rule out that there was a connection. i think the reason a lot of people are asking is the bombings happened about 3:00 p.m. on
